The Khatulistiwa, which honors Indonesia’s best fiction, is the brainchild of Richard Oh, the owner of QB World Books, and is supported by the management of Plaza Senayan, Mont Blanc, Ernst & Young, Honda, Jakarta Hilton International, Secure Parking and nuvoCom.

According to the organizers, the purpose of the award is to raise the image of Indonesian literature and to encourage more Indonesians to read. It is also hoped that the Khatulistiwa award will encourage authors and publishers to continue creating quality works of fiction.1

About Us

For short, our main feature, the writer's directory, provides a way for writers to find one another, but more importantly, the resources provided make it easy for event hosts—especially for international event hosts—literary organizers, arts administrators, librarians, booksellers, and readers to get in touch with writers. It's a HOME FOR INDONESIAN WRITERS. We strive to break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian books or literature from becoming more widespread.

Questions, comments, articles, info, etc. are more than welcome. Just send us an e-mail, mention us on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook or use the contact form.
